Autopsies expected after 3 die during Detroit marathon

DETROIT — Autopsies are expected to find out the cause of three half-marathoners who died during the Detroit marathon Sunday.

Officials said 36-year-old Daniel Langdon collapsed at about 9:02 a.m. Sunday between the 11- and 12-mile markers and 65-year-old Rick Brown collapsed at 9:17 a.m., near where Langdon went down, while it was reported that 26-year-old Jon Fenlon collapsed at about 9:18 a.m., just after finishing the 13.1-mile half-marathon in 1:53:37.

The autopsies are scheduled for Monday.

Rich Harshbarger, vice president of consumer marketing for the Detroit Media Partnership, told the Detroit Free Press emergency personnel were on the scene within seconds.

“On a day when so many people bring such energy and challenge themselves to do their utmost, this news is very difficult to hear,” said Free Press editor and publisher Paul Anger said. “Our deepest sympathies are with the families.”

It was unclear whether Brown and Langdon were participating in the 13.1-mile half marathon or the full race.

More than 19,000 people were registered to participate in the 32nd Detroit Free Press/Flagstar Marathon.
